in this together, re-elect president obama. >> as katy perry lights up the badger state. >>> good to have you with us tonight. with just about 50 hours until election day, the candidates are making their closing arguments like never before and in the battleground state of ohio, president obama is definitely on the move. the latest nbc maris poll has the president up. he is pushing hard about the dishonest ad about jeep moving jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried asking if their jobs were being shipped to china. you've heard about this. everybody heard about this? and the reason they're worried is because governor romney is running ads saying that jeep is shipping jobs to china. there's only one problem. it's not true. >> it's just not ohio where president obama is surging. in 22 new polls of battleground states, the president leads in 19 of them. the obama campaign is taking nothing for granted, however. and joe biden put the campaign into perspective. >> i want to remind you, this is the end of daylight savings time tonig
were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. then out west to springfield, ohio. then he headed north to lima, ohio. mitt romney was not going to be outdone. here is a look at another romney campaign rock concert and victory rally outside cincinnati. romney was also in wisconsin this morning, portraying himself as the candidate of change? >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? and we bring real change. >> do you want 32 more months of private sector job growth? romney sure has a funny way of showing change, doesn't he? take a look at romney's surrogates at tonight's ohio victory rally. former secretary of state condoleezza rice, former labor secretary elaine chao, bobby jindal, tom ridge and also ohio senator rob portman. all five of these folks worked with the bush administration. in fact, mitt romney's campaign is looking more and more like the bush white house every day. romney even pulled out the old dick cheney trick of scaring voters before an electio
before the election is now out and it is all good news for the obama supporters. the united states added 171,000 jobs last month. expectations were around 125,000 new jobs. the unemployment rate is up .1% of a point to 7.9%. the reason behind the slight uptick is more americans joined the work force. this of course is good news. it makes october 184,000 jobs were added to the private sector. numbers for august and september were revised upward. the job numbers helped president obama make the case about the improving economy. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we hired that companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> with only four days left on the campaign trail, the candidates were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. first here in hilliard ohio in the center of the state, then to springfield then to lima, ohio. mitt romney was not going to be outdo
was campaigning also in the sunshine state today. president obama returns to the campaign trail tomorrow. he plans to barnstorm seven battleground states over the next several days. but today, we did not see politics in action. what we saw was government in action. people with authority to make decisions. chris christie is not the first person, i think, that you would think of when you come to the, you know, arena of bipartisan cooperation. he is a mitt romney supporter and a fierce opponent of many democratic issues. for whatever reason, we saw a different chris christie with president obama today. this is what cooperation looks like. when the american people need government to work, these two elected officials became leaders, and are in lockstep with each other. about time, isn't it? things are getting done. so many politicians run for office saying that they are going to reach across the aisle when they get to washington, and they're going to get things done when they get elected. most of them never deliver. now, in defense of president obama, i just want to remind the country tonight that he h
campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the republican convention. governor christie spent the last four days praising the president of the united
for the obama campaign to hit back hard. in the state of florida it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke the fears and the emotions of people down in that portion of the state? >> well, it just -- i think mitt romney is finally just getting absolutely desperate. it is him learning a little bit of -- him realizing he cannot win, just like you said, w
released this week. five of them have president obama leading. one is tied. president obama's average lead in ohio is 2.3 points. that's a big lead, seriously. now families in northern ohio have not forgotten what the rescue of the automobile industry did for their state. one in eight ohio jobs are about the automobile industry. this is why mitt romney is doing everything he possibly can to down play the impact of the auto rescue. his political director says the obama campaign dropped the auto bailout on us, but there's only so long you can ride that one trick pony. you think getting a paycheck is a one-trick pony? romney called last night's event a victory rally. today romney gave a standard stump speech in iowa, but his campaign called it a victory event. so if you believe mitt romney, heck, he's already won the election. the auto rescue was no big deal and ohio jobs are getting shipped over to china. you can't believe a word this guy says. one no knows this isn't true is rob portman. portman knows romney is toast without ohio. >> if we don't win ohio, it's stuff to see us winning the el
of state colin powell of issuing a racially-motivated endorsement of president obama. sununu has an active role in the romney campaign. this isn't the first time that sununu has race baited while advocating for the republican nominee. and yet the romney campaign just keeps putting him out there. >> the president clearly demonstrated that he has absolutely no idea how the american economy functions. i wish this this president would learn how to be an american. >> he has no idea how the american system functions. and we shouldn't be surprised about that. because he spent his early years in hawaii smoking something. >> people saw last night was a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is. >> governor, i want to give you a chance maybe to take it back. did you mean to call the president of the united states lazy? >> yes. >> joining me now is michael eric dyson, msnbc political analyst and professor of sociology at georgetown university. michael, great to have you with us again tonight. let's see, he hopes that barack obama learns something. he accuses him of smoking
obama in particular. >> i was on the phone for the third time yesterday, last night with the president of the united states. he called me at midnight last night. he accelerated the major disaster declaration for new jersey without the usual red tape. i can't thank the president enough for that. signed that this morning. so i have to say this. the cooperation has been great with fema here on the ground. and the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. he deserves great credit. >> mitt romney, on the other hand, cannot run from his declaration about fema during the campaign. >> every time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and sends it to the states, that's in the right direction. if you can send it to the private sector that's even better. we should take all of what we're doing and say what are the things we're doing that we don't have to do and that's what we have to stop doing. we're borrowing more this year than we're taking in. we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it's si
and local governments. there's been close coordination between state, federal and local governme governments. >> if you want to know how close the coordination has been, listen to new jersey governor chris christie. >> i've been in touch with president obama this afternoon. the president called me at about 2:15 this afternoon. it was just the two of us on the phone. we had a good conversation. the president wanted to know if we had everything that we needed to be able to respond to the storm. i told him we did. we wanted to check on the level of cooperation with fema, i said it was excellent. he said if at any point over the next 48 hours, i was not getting from the federal government i should call him directly at the white house and had he was going to be there. and that i should just not worry about dealing with anybody else. just call him. >> president obama was quick to point out the response is part of the normal government operations. it's not a reflection of the current election climate. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact o
